LITERATURE. 



MRS. FRANCES L. GILBERT, CHICAGO, Chairman. 

At the first executive session of the Illinois Woman's Exposi- 
tion Board, held in September, 1891, suggestions for an exhibit 
were made by each member of the board. One of the many ideas 
advanced was a proposition to collect a copy of every book writ- 
ten by women of Illinois for display at the Columbian Fair, thus 
informing the interested as to the intellectual development of the 
women of the state in the year 1893. 

In Illinois the committee on literature was not appointed until 
August of 1892, and in the meanwhile Columbian County Clubs 
had been organized through the efforts of the board in every 
county in the state, Cook County alone excepted, where the or- 
ganizations of women were already so numerous that it was 
thought the work could be more effectually carried on through 
them. 

The chairman of the committee on literature appealed to these 
clubs to secure the publications of their authors and they re- 
sponded helpfully to the request for assistance. 

It soon became apparent that all intellectual endeavor had not 
been made in the large cities. Country, villages and towns con- 
tributed to the library of nearly five hundred volumes contained 
in this list. 

The first book written by an Illinois woman — the veteran of 
the collection, " Early Engagements — " bears date of 1854. Its 
nearest of kin, " Wau-Bun," was written in 1856; the last " Old 
Kaskaskia " in 1892. Forty years, hardly middle aged, is the in- 
tellectual life of woman in this state.

4 ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 

During this brief life almost every department of human 
interest has been touched upon. Many of our authors have 
achieved distinction, some for originality, some for their great 
moral or religious influence, others for fine writing and still others 
for scholarly research. Of this number one is a member of the 
Philosophical Society of London and of the International Con- 
gress of Orientalists and another of the National Society of 
America. 

Illinois is particularly fortunate in artistic accomplishment, 
having several illustrators of books whose fame is national and 
even international; one having secured the medal at Vienna as an 
amateur photographer. Since then, her art has been applied to 
the embellishment of books. All of these are a delight to lovers 
of the esthetic in literature. 

Education, not in the narrow " What is an island " manner of 
the past, but upon the broad plan of freedom and liberty for 
every talent of mind and grace of body, has a most desirable 
place in the literature of to-day in Illinois. Medicine, science, 
law and art have been written upon wisely and helpfully although 
not voluminously by our women. 

Domestic science and physical culture are now receiving such 
attention that the celebrators of the fifth Columbian centennial 
should rival the models now seen only in classic art and whose 
perfections seem unattainable to the present generation. 

Perhaps the bravest, worthiest work done by women is the 
manna gathered for the newspapers which nourishes and en- 
riches all the days of our lives but is seldom crystallized into form 
and therefore not forming a part of permanent literature. Of 
these industrious writers, Illinois has an army, camped in many 
fields through the state, helping to keep life pure and worthy. 
Twenty-seven papers in the state are edited and published by 
women, and no large daily is now complete without woman's work. 
The magazine holds a place in the hearts of all its readers that

fears no competition. Its arrival in the family is awaited with 
impatience and hailed with enthusiasm. To this valuable de- 
partment of the reading world, the women of Illinois have added 
thirteen, not an unlucky number since the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence. For twenty years a woman in Illinois has held with 
dignity and marked ability the position of editor and proprietor 
of the official court journal of the state, The Chicago Legal News, 
which she founded. In this achievement, all womankind has 
been encouraged in strong, earnest endeavor in fields long har- 
vested by men. 

In presenting this list of the books, magazines and papers of 
the women of Illinois, two systems have been adopted, one 
alphabetical and one classified. This double method it is hoped 
will assist those desiring information to secure it with the least 
possible effort.

MRS. FRAXCIXE E. PATTOX, SPRINGFIELD, Chairman. 

Mrs. Francine E. Patton, chairman of the committee on edu- 
cational, charitable and professional work, has prepared a vol- 
ume of statistics showing the number of women teachers, law- 
yers, physicians, editors and newspaper correspondents, and the 
number of organizations of women engaged in philanthropic, 
charitable, professional and literary work. The volume for ex- 
hibit is a handsome "edition de luxe," engrossed by Miss Mar- 
garet Brooks, of Springfield, 111., and bound by the women 
workers of Rokker's book-bindery at Springfield. 

The accompanying preface describes the work of the Illinois 
Woman's Exposition Board and the manner of compilation. 
To the Women of Illinois: 

The Illinois Woman's Exposition Board, recognizing that 
woman enters largely into the educational, charitable and profes- 
sional work of the world, herewith presents the results of a 
canvass of the state for the number of women engaged in the 
education of our youth, in caring for the sick, the aged 
and the poor, and as near as possible reporting those who are 
battling with life as wage earners. Through the interest and un- 
remitting labors of the women in our County Columbian Clubs, 
the present volume has been made possible, and to them we 
dedicate this work, hoping that ere many years each and every 
county may send out women prepared to meet and conquer every 
foe to morals, religion and progress. In the smaller towns the 
church is the fountain of all charitable work; hence we have 



ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 31 

noted all the mission and aid societies reported, though they are 
but auxiliaries of state organizations. As in all statistical work, 
much is overlooked, but enough is gathered to show the trend of 
public sentiment, and to prove that "The destiny of nations lies in 
the hands of woman." 

Francine E. Patton, Chairman, 
Educational, Charitable a?id Professional Work of Women in Illinois. 

Several thousand copies of this volume have been prepared for 
free distribution.

THE PALETTE CLUB. 



More than a decade of years ago, when art knowledge and 

art education had but as light hold in the west, and when the 

old Academy of Fine Arts, located over a jewelry store on the 

corner of State and Madison streets, in the city of Chicago, was 

maintaining a precarious existence, there was to be found among 

the students a few earnest, talented young girls who were 

enthusiastic in their pursuit of an art education. In the fall of 

1880 half a dozen of these girls met by invitation in the studio 

of Miss Marie Koupal, a talented young Bohemian girl, to 

sketch together and to encourage one another by frank and 

friendly criticism. These meetings were so enjoyable, and withal 

so helpful, that it was decided to continue them indefinitely. 

This informal little sketch class soon resolved itself into an 

equally informal little club, which dubbed itself, in compliment 

to the nationality of the young woman at whose suggestion it 

45 



46 ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 

was founded, and also as typifying its extremely informal char- 
acter, the "Bohemian Art Club." The club organized with Miss 
Koupal as president, but did not formulate by-laws until later 
on. The little club waxed and grew strong; so much so, that in 
the spring of 1881 it was considered advisable to adopt a con- 
stitution, which was drafted for the club by Miss Adele Fay. 
This constitution provided for a board of four officers, to-wit: 
President, vice-president, secretary and treasurer. Under this 
constitution Mrs. E. S. L. Adams was elected president, and held 
the office continuously for four years, being succeeded by Mrs. 
S. Van D. Shaw, Miss Ida J. Burgess, the late Mrs. Margaret 
MacDonald Pullman, Miss Alice D. Kellogg and Miss Pauline 
A. Dohn, respectively. 

One of the most delightful practices of the young club was 
the annual summer sketching tour, when all the members went 
for a few weeks to some chosen spot, and worked and enjoyed 
life together in a truly Bohemian manner. 

In the spring of the year 1882 the club gave its first public 
exhibition in the galleries of the new Art Institute on Van Buren 
street. The strength and talent evinced by that first modest 
little exhibit were such as to excite the astonishment and admi- 
ration of all who saw it, and encouraged the young women to 
renewed efforts. The second annual exhibit of the Bohemian 
club was a distant advance over the first one, and the precedent 
thus established has been faithfully adhered to, and the standard 
of excellence in each succeeding exhibition has been higher 
than that of any which has preceded, until, at the present time, 
the club occupies an enviable position among the professional 
art clubs of America. 

In the year 1888 the club had attained a dignity and an 
importance which made "Bohemian Art Club" a misnomer, and 
the name was changed to "The Palette Club."

In the club's evolution from an amateur sketch class to its 
present professional basis, it has steadily grown in number; at 
present it has more than seventy members, fully one-third of 
whom have studied abroad, under the most celebrated masters 
of Paris and Munich. Of these foreign trained students, a large 
percentage have exhibited with credit in the Paris Salon. Of 
the home trained members, there are few whose names are not 
well-known in the more important exhibitions of America. 

The little band of enthusiasts who met in Miss Koupal's 
studio thirteen years ago, are almost without exception, still 
members of the club, and among its strongest and most brilliant 
workers. 

The records of the club being destroyed in the Athenaeum 
fire of April, 1892, the club adopted a new constitution, retaining 
the name of "The Palette Club," many of the features of the old 
constitution which had tended to render the club so successful, 
and limiting the membership exclusively to women artists. The 
same year the club was incorporated under the laws of the State 
of Illinois.

DECORATIVE ART 



MRS. H. H. CANDEE, CAIRO, Chairman. 

In making a representative exhibit of decorative art, the 
Illinois Woman's Exposition Board desires to show to advan- 
tage, not only the work of Illinois women in beaten paths, but 
also and more especially the advance made in new and artistic 
styles of work. While not neglecting the feminine occupations 
of fine sewing, embroidering, crocheting, knitting and needle-work 
of all kind, especial attention has been given to newer indus- 
tries in art lines, such as ceramic paintings, leather work, pyrog- 
raphy, wood-carving and ecclesiastical embroidery, The beau- 
tiful samples of this sort of work will prove that Illinois is not 
behind her sister states or the world in artistic designs and deli- 
cate execution and furnish a new impetus to the hundreds of 
women now pursuing such labor with success. 

It is hoped to raise both the standard and the remuneration 
for decorative art and to show the possibilities it contains for 
livelihood when followed conscientiously and with a spirit of 
fidelity to high ideals.

and shows what talent and industry will accomplish even under difficulties, 
being made by a young girl with many cares of farm life, from the refuse wax 
of the honeycomb. By a process of her own, she bleaches the discolored wax, 
sheets it and copies each flower from the living blossom, taking the latter apart 
petal by petal as a model for the faithful reproduction in wax, to which she 
gives the appropriate coloring and finish.

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL ARTS. 



INCLUDING PHOTOGRAPHS, BOOK ILLUSTRATIONS, DESIGNS, 
INVENTIONS AND MANUFACTURES. 



ALICE BRADFORD WILES, Chairman of Committee. 
In considering this department as that of practical arts, it 
must be remembered that this classification is entirely arbitrary, 
having been made many months ago as a mattter of convenience 
in dividing the work of the board among the different commit- 
tees. Thus, wood carving, painting on porcelain and plain and 
ornamental needlework, however "practical," were classified as 
"decorative;" and cooking was of such great importance as to be 
given a department by itself. No division not arbitrary could be 
made, because the natural aim of woman is to unite the practical 
and decorative whenever possible in all walks of life, 

PHOTOGRAPHS. 
One of the main objects persistently followed by the Illinois 
Woman's Exposition Board has been to call attention to the new 
occupations constantly opening to women, by which they may 
earn their own livelihood or add to the sum of human happiness 
and progress. Among these, one for which woman is peculiarly 
fitted because of her manual dexterity and artistic taste, is photog- 
raphy. The board has fortunately been able to secure an inter- 
esting photographic exhibit, including specimens of work from 
an amateur photographer who received first diploma for distin- 
guished excellence in the Vienna Exhibition of 1891.

BOOK ILLUSTRATIONS. 
The art of pictorial illustration as applied to books and 
magazines has been greatly improved during the present gener- 
ation, its advancement being largely due to the enterprise of 
American publishers and the skill of American artists and en- 
gravers. Highly creditable work of this class has been done by

DESIGNS. 

One of the most recently opened fields for woman's effort, 
and one which affords ample scope for her taste and skill, is 
practical designing. The board has found a number of women in 
Illinois successfully earning their living by making designs for 
use in various branches of the mechanical and decorative arts,

INVENTIONS. 
The Illinois Woman's Board has been greatly surprised to 
learn the large number of inventions patented by Illinois women, 
as according to common report woman is supposed to be lacking 
in inventive genius. The first patent granted to an Illinois woman 
was issued in 1864, and from'that time until February 21, 1893. tne 
two hundred and forty-nine patents in the following list have been 
issued to Illinois women, according to the report of the United 
States Patent Office. This list necessarily embraces only those 
women who at the time of the issue of the letters patent were 
residents of the State of Illinois. There are undoubtedly a very 
large number of women now residents of Illinois to whom pat- 
ents were issued while they were residents of other states, although 
later they have come to Illinois, and by virtue of long residence 
may be justly claimed as Illinois women. It has been, of course,

impossible to obtain a record of such inventions. The letters 
patent noted in the list are on exhibition, the drawings being 
framed and displayed, and the accompanying specifications being 
bound in a volume open to public inspection. These inventions 
range in character from sewing, cooking and nursing appliances, 
pertaining especially to the employments of women, to pave- 
ments, harness attachments, photographic apparatus, car coup- 
lers, hay presses, and other implements or processes for use in 
occupations in which women are seldom engaged. 

Models of a large number of the inventions have been fur- 
nished by the patentees, and form an interesting though incom- 
plete exhibit. Many of the inventors could not be found, and 
others had no models and were unwilling to incur the trouble and 
expense of having them prepared, especially in those cases where 
the terms of the patents had expired. Some of the most interest- 
ing and valuable are not represented among the models for the 
reason that their size and complication would have made the 
preparation of the models extremely expensive.

MANUFACTURES. 
From the organization of the Illinois Woman's Exposition 
Board in August, 1891, the question of the proper representation 
at the Columbian Exposition of the manufacturing industries of 
Illinois women has been recognized as of great importance, and 
has received earnest attention. Those best informed in indus- 
trial matters have been consulted, including manufacturers, 
employes and the leaders of labor societies. The most satisfac- 
tory representation would have been the showing of the indus- 
tries in actual operation; but this was found to be impossible 
because of the limited space under the control of the board. 
Only one-tenth of the Illinois State Building was set aside for the 



HO ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 

representation of the work of women, and in this small space, only 
42x150 feet, the board desired to show all the industries in which 
Illinois women are to-day employed. The feasibility of repre- 
senting the manufacturing industries in miniature was carefully 
canvassed, and a prize was offered through all the newspapers of 
the State for the best plan for such representation. Only two 
replies were received, and the ideas presented applied to very 
few industries and were impracticable for various reasons. As the 
number of women engaged in industrial pursuits in Illinois was 
known to be very large, the board was determined that, in spite 
of the many difficulties, some representation of these industries 
should be made. A most careful research, both by correspond- 
ence and personal visits, was made, in order that finished samples 
of the work done by women in factories might be exhibited; but 
the board was at once confronted by the fact that almost univers- 
ally in manufacturing industries the finished products are the 
result of the combined labor of men and women, and that sepa- 
ration of these products in accordance with the sex of the workers 
was impossible, except in a limited number of instances hereafter 
mentioned. It was then decided that all the manufacturing 
industries in which women are engaged side by side with 
men should be shown by means of photography; and it was 
thought that this method would, in some respects, be more satis- 
factory than any other, as its truthful portrayal of facts could 
not be questioned nor denied. The fullest possible inquiries were 
then made in order that no factory industry might be overlooked; 
and the series of one hundred and eight ( io8)photographs, show- 
ing women in the various industries below enumerated, is the out- 
growth of this plan. 

This effort of the board has met with hearty co-operation on 
the part of the manufacturers. Free access has been granted to 
factories, and with few exceptions, permission has been granted 



ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. m 

to take such photographs as were desired, in spite of the fact 
that it frequently involved the stopping of machinery and always 
the taking of the time of the employes from work. The few 
exceptions have been justified by the fact that the manufacturers 
did not desire certain machinery or processes made public; or, 
oftener, that the women themselves objected to being photo- 
graphed. In examining the photographs they must not be con- 
sidered as an exhibit of photography, since the conditions exist- 
ing in the work rooms are entirely unfavorable for fine photo- 
graphic results. 

In many factories in which women and girls were employed 
it was found that they were simply acting as clerks or type- 
writers and had no part in the production of manufactured 
articles. 

Where it was found that women owned and managed the fac- 
tories, and that the finished products were the result of woman's 
labor alone, such products are exhibited and are recorded below. 
A larger exhibit of this kind might have been made, but only by 
expenditure of vast time, effort and money in the personal 
investigation of the numerous factories of the State; and when this 
was begun it was soon discovered that the results would not be 
sufficiently valuable to justify this expenditure. The board has 
never believed that the mere fact that the worker was a woman, 
even if in unusual lines of industry, made the product of her labor 
worthy of exhibition, and when manufactured articles were 
selected because of their intrinsic value, as has been said, they 
were found to be, with very few exceptions, the result of the com- 
bined labor of the sexes. 

The board is fully aware of the very great changes in the 
inaustrial position of women during the last decade, and also of 
the very great public interest in all questions bearing upon the 
subject; but this is neither the time nor the place for theorizing. 



112 ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 

The board simply wishes to emphasize the fact that it has made 
every possible effort to represent fully and justly and with strict 
regard to the truth of actual, every-day conditions, this very 
important factor in the industrial life of the present day. 

STATISTICS OF MANUFACTURES. 
Preliminary Totals for Selected Cities in the State of Illinois. 

Census Office, Washington, D. C, April 8, 1893. 
These totals include reports received for all classes of establishments of 
productive industry that reported a gross product valued at $500 or over, dur- 
ing the census year, beginning June 1, 1889, and ending May 31, 1890. The 
data are subject to such changes as may be found necessary upon the receipt 
of additional returns. (See table of statistics, next page.)

ACTIVE EXHIBITS UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE 

Illinois Woman's Exposition Board 



THE CORN KITCHEN OF THE ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSI- 
TION BOARD. 

Realizing the great importance of calling the attention of the 
world to the valuable nutritive qualities of corn as a food product, 
the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board has made an appropria- 
tion for the daily conduct of a Corn Kitchen. In this delicious 
and healthful dishes are produced entirely from corn in its vari- 
ous preparations. While our beef and wheat are well known 
abroad, maize, our most abundant product, is not accepted because 
it requires different methods of preparation, unknown to foreign 
housekeepers. Ignorance upon that point is too prevalent also 
in our own country, and for this reason the use of the great staple 
of Illinois is prominently brought before the world by the Illinois 
Woman's Exposition Board at this time. Having secured the 
services of one of the most able demonstrators in cooking, Mrs. 
S. T. Rorer of Philadelphia, practical cooking lessons, showing 
the various ways in which corn products can be utilized, will be 
given every morning during the fair from half past ten to half 
past twelve in the kitchen of the Woman's Building. Hominy 
samp, corn meal, corn flour, corn starch, and shaved corn are 
used, and made into dishes both cheap, nutritious and delicious, 
and it is hoped by means of these practical lessons to reach a 
large and increasing number of housekeepers and home makers. 
As a supplement to this important work undertaken by the 
Illinois Woman's Exposition Board is the class for general cook- 
ing for children each afternoon, when twenty girls from the ages 
of twelve to sixteen receive practical instruction in making fires, 
caring for marketing and kitchen and preparing and cooking all 

common food stuffs. The class will be changed each month,

thus giving instruction to one hundred girls in soup and bread 
making, vegetable cooking, and sauces, broiling, baking, roast- 
ing, utilizing left overs, the making of tea, coffee and cocoa, 
simple desserts, plain cakes, pure candies and the general manag- 
ing of a meal. 

Simple chemistry and hygiene are also taught. These lessons 
will be of infinite value throughout the entire lives of the children 
and help to increase the interest in domestic science and health- 
ful food. At the close of the lessons the cooked food is dis- 
tributed to those who wish to sample its excellence, and Mrs. 
Rorer will be glad to show samples also of the various prepara- 
tions of corn, explaining the chemical properties of each to visit- 
ors, millers, supply merchants and others. The use of corn flour 
is at present limited, but its value can not be too widely known, 
and Mrs. Rorer will make a specialty of explaining it to those 
interested. 

ILLINOIS WOMAN'S HOSPITAL AND TRAINING SCHOOL 
EXHIBIT. 

This building, containing this exhibit, is the gift of Mr. Har- 
low N. Higinbotham, of the World's Columbian Exposition, to 
the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board, and is located just west 
of the Children's Building. 

As soon as the fact was known that a Woman's Building for 
illustrating the special work of women would be erected at the 
Columbian Exposition, the Illinois Training School for Nurses 
applied for space to make a national exhibit of the work of the 
training schools of the United States. This was early in the 
summer of 1890. As soon as assured by Mrs. Palmer that such 
space would be granted, the secretary of the school wrote to all 
of the training schools in the United States, asking them to co- 
operate with the Illinois Training School in making a practical 
exhibit of their work. All but one school replied that they would 



124 ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 

gladly do their share, could their expenses be paid; but unless 
assured that the necessary cost would be met in some way out- 
side of their regular receipts, it would be impossible for them to 
do so. The one exception was the John Hopkins where the 
school itself held such financial relations to the hospital that the 
superintendent was able to accept unconditionally. 

In Illinois, application had been made to the legislature to 
appropriate the sum necessary for a general exhibit of the in- 
dustries of the state, and in response the generous appropriation 
of $800,000 was made, of which $80,000 was placed at the disposal 
of the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board for the use of the 
women of the state. 

On September 10, 1891, the Illinois Training School for 
Nurses applied to said board for money to enable them to ar- 
range an exhibit of the work of the women of the United States 
in medicine and nursing, through the means of a model emergency 
ward in the Woman's Building. In response to this request, 
after due consideration, the officers of the school were informed 
that under the instruction of the attorney-general of the state, 
the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board could not put any money 
into a national exhibit, and that whatever money it appropriated, 
must go solely for Illinois exhibits. As the Illinois Training 
School was in no condition itself to pay for an exhibit, this deci- 
sion put an end to the original plan of a general union of all the 
training schools of the country in one exhibit. The Board of 
Managers of the Illinois Training School at once made a second 
application to the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board for $6,000 
to "establish and maintain an emergency ward in the Woman's 
Building in which to practically illustrate the standing of the 
women physicians, surgeons and nurses of the state." This sec- 
ond application was in January, 1892, and on April 7, 1892, 
such an appropriation was made by the Illinois Woman's Expo- 
sition Board and a contract made by them with the Illinois Train- 



ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 125 

ing School for Nurses for the purpose specified. This contract 
was signed June 10, 1892. 

At that time it was proposed to make this hospital exhibit, 
by means of an actual operating ward in the Woman's Building, 
for the use of women and children who might be taken sick on 
the grounds and desire the services of a female physician; and it 
was decided to consider the establishment and maintenance of 
that ward the contribution of the Illinois Board to the Woman's 
Building. When the final arrangements were being made, how- 
ever, any kind of a hospital in the Woman's Building was 
found to be impracticable, on account of the great publicity 
and lack of drainage facilities, and, for a time, consequently, it 
was feared the school would be compelled to abandon the 
medical part of the exhibit and limit itself merely to illustrating 
the work of trained nurses by means of photographs, uniforms, 
etc. 

Owing to the kindness and liberality of Hon. Harlow N. 
Higinbotham, however, a separate building was finally erected 
expressly for the purposes of this exhibit. As soon as Mr. Hig- 
inbotham's generous intention was made known, the space which 
had been reserved in the Woman's Building was surrendered. 

In the building prepared especially for the active exhibit 
conducted by the women surgeons, physicians and trained nurses 
of Illinois, there is a model operating room with all appliances; 
a model diet kitchen fully equipped for hospital necessities; a 
model office and reception room; a section of a child's ward; a 
section of a woman's ward, and a private room for patients. In 
the latter every comfort and convenience will be found, and the 
best of care will be given to any women or children who may de- 
sire to apply for medical services, or who may be brought to the 
hospital. All three schools of medicine are represented in the 
attending physicians, a resident physician of each school being 
appointed for daily service. Volunteer physicians from each 



126 ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 

school of medicine will also be in attendance for varying periods 
during the continuance of the Fair. A head nurse will also be 
constantly in the building, and every training school in the state 
will be represented some time during the six months through one 
or more of their graduates, who will serve likewise for varying 
periods as circumstances may require. 
Resident Staff of Hospital: 

Dr. Mary A. Mixer, Director of Exhibit and Allopathic Physician. 

Dr. Emma C. Geisse, HomcopatJiic Physician. 

Dr. Laura L. Randolph, Electric Physician. 

The Visiting Nurses' Association, which is one of the finest and 
most philanthropic enterprises in the city, and one of the results of 
the perfection to which the service of trained nursing has been 
brought, will also have a representation in the Hospital Building, 
and the attendant will explain their system of work among the 
poor of the city to all who desire such information. 

PHARMACY. 
The pharmacy is located in the north end of the Hospital 
Building. The women in charge of the exhibit are Mrs. I. H.

THE KINDERGARTEN IN THE ILLINOIS STATE 
BUILDING. 

The kindergarten under the auspices of this board is located in the room 
east of the exhibit space* Daily sessions are held from 9:30 to 12, except 
Saturdays, to which visitors are welcome. Forty children are in attendance. 

This room was decorated under the supervision of Miss Blanche McManus. 

The Froebel Kindergarten Association of Chicago are in charge during 
the months of May, June and July. The Free Kindergarten Association of 
Chicago will have charge during August, September and October. 

The following reports from these two associations define their work. 

FROEBEL KINDERGARTEN ASSOCIATION. 

Through the liberality of the Illinois Woman's Exposition 
Board and its appreciation of the educational value of a living- 
kindergarten exhibit, the way was opened to the kindergarten 
associations of Chicago to undertake and carry forward this en- 
terprise. The Froebel Association being responsible for the first 
three months, or until August first; and the Free Kindergarten 
Association for the last three. The ladies of the Illinois board hav- 
ing pledged themselves to the kindergarten immediately began the 
task of making full provisions for its successful conduct, appro- 
priating for its use the very choicest portion of the space 
allotted to them, a grand room on the first floor, sixty feet in 
length and thirty feet in width, lighted by nine large windows, six 

looking toward the east and three toward the south. The arrange- 

128 



ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 129 

ments of the construction of the room, its doors, windows, closets 
and gallery for visitors, were submitted to the kindergarten com- 
mittee and the result has proved a model kindergarten room in 
beauty and convenience. With the luxuriant wild roses clamber- 
ing over their rustic trellis in the artistic frieze above, and the 
happy, active children playing their simple games, assiduously 
devoted to their varied occupations, or singing their merry songs 
in the circle below with the warm sunlight streaming in over the 
ferns and flowers of the window boxes and illuminating the 
carefully chosen pictures upon the walls, the visitor has before 
him a "living exhibit" of that paradise of children which grand 
old Friedrich Froebel, by the devotion of a lifetime, developed 
in the kindergarten. 

This kindergarten in the Illinois Building is not presented 
as a model kindergarten by any means, the children having been 
but a few months in training. It only claims to show the proc- 
esses of growth, the development of the child by the occupa- 
tions and organized play of the Froebel system. 

The kindergartners in charge are: 

Director — Miss Mary W. Jones. 

Assistants — Miss Kate Carey, Miss Helen E. Starr, Miss Fanny Chapin, 
Miss Helen Goodrich. 

The associations, both the Free and Froebel, wish gratefully 
to acknowledge their indebtedness to the following individuals 
and firms who have generously assisted in the decoration and 
furnishing of the room. 

Miss Blanche McManus, whose studio is in the Auditorium 
Building, contributed the frieze, her own design and execution. 

Messrs. Lyon & Potter the use of the piano for the six months. 

The Peninsular Stove Co. the ornamented stove. 

Mr. W. A. Olmsted, the blackboard, tables, chairs and clock. 

Mr. Scott W. Thurber, Mr. Martin O'Brien, and Mr. L. Prang, 
the pictures upon the walls. 



130 ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 

For a number of years previous to the organization of the 
Froebel Kindergarten Association, the knowledge of Froebel's 
system of education had been gradually spreading in our city. 
By means of a visit of Miss Elizabeth Peabody to Chicago, in 
1868, this interest was deepened and extended. The following 
year a private kindergarten was opened by Mrs. E. W. Blatch- 
ford, on the North Side, which was continued up to the time of 
the great fire in 1871. 

In the winter of 1874 and 1875, ^ rs - John Ogden, of Colum- 
bus, Ohio, was induced to come to Chicago to take charge of the 
newly formed training class and at the same time to conduct a 
kindergarten. At the end of the year Mrs, Ogden returned to 
Ohio, leaving the training class in the hands of Mrs. A. H. Put- 
nam, one of her graduates. 

In 1879, on June 16th, the first free kindergarten was opened 
by Mrs. E. W. Blatchford in the Chicago Avenue Church, with 
Miss S. E. Walker, who had been at the head of the primary 
department in the Haven School, as director, and Miss Mary W. 
Jones as assistant. This was the first Memorial Kindergarten in 
the United States. 

The interest diffused through the community by these vari- 
ous efforts was concentrated by the organization in October, 1881, 
of The Chicago Froebel Kindergarten Association. The earnest 
women who identified themselves with this charity by their works 
and gifts were inspired with the purpose of reaching and helping 
the neglected little children in the poorer districts of the city. 

This purpose has been steadily carried out and it would be 
impossible by any statistics to set forth the good which has 
resulted to the little ones themselves, and through them to their 
parents and their homes. 



ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 131 

The following are the names of the first officers and mana- 
gers of the association elected in June, 1882: 

Mrs. E. W. Blatchford, President. 

Mrs. T. W. Harvey, Vice-President. 

Miss Amy Blatchford, Secretary.

Mrs. E. B. Preston. Mrs. Ernst Prussing. 

Mrs. George A. Armour. 

Superintendent of Training Class, Mrs. Alice H. Putnam. 

In connection with the direct work indicated above, the 
association has steadily kept in view the introduction of the 
kindergarten into the public school system, believing that when 
kindergarten principles and methods should be more generally 
understood, the public would demand their incorporation into the 
public schools — as only in this way can the great mass of our 
children be reached. 

It did not seem wise to those interested in this advance 
movement in education to press it too urgently until there should 
be a trained body of kindergartners read}- to meet the new 
demand, as the training class which was immediately established 
by the association could at first do little more than supply its 
own kindergartners. The superintendent chosen was Mrs. Alice 
H. Putnam, a lady whose success in similar work in the city for a 
period of seven years had demonstrated her rare aptitude for it. 
Mrs. Putnam has continued in charge of this growing work until 



132 ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 

the present time, and through the numerous and able graduates 
of her class, her name and her work have become influential in 
her own, and in other lands, Mrs. Putnam was for a number of 
years in charge of the Model Kindergarten at the Cook County 
Normal School, where she had the enthusiastic co-operation of 
Colonel Parker, the distinguished educator from Massachusetts, 
who made the Quincy schools so famous and gave such impetus 
to primary education in Boston, and who had come to Chicago 
to take charge of the Cook County Normal School. This identi- 
fication with the normal school naturally brought the kinder- 
garten and its methods to the notice of prominent educators, 
such as city and county superintendents and school principals. 
In this way it came about that, occasionally, when there was an 
unoccupied room in some public school building, the association 
was permitted to introduce, at its own expense, rent and care of 
room excepted, one of its kindergartens, and thus teachers of all 
grades in these schools have been made practically familiar with 
the principles and methods of the kindergarten system. 

Progress toward the introduction of the kindergarten into the 
public school has been made. 

A bill is now before the Illinois legislature, a local option bill, 
to permit the addition of the kindergarten to the public school, 
wherever a majority of the voters in a particular school district 
shall so elect. In this city prominent members of the school 
board have done much to encourage the spread of the kindergar- 
ten system. In August, 1892, the Froebel Association rejoiced in 
the fact that six of its kindergartens were adopted by the Board 
of Education of this city, to be conducted as a part of the public 
school system, under a supervising kindergartner. It is believed 
that the number of kindergartens will gradually be added to, as 
the School Board overtakes its large arrears in providing school 
buildings, and that in the good time for which we hope, every 



ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD, 133 

public school will give its best room, and its best teacher, to the 
children who have been heretofore considered as under school 
age. Such a change in oui school system will add three years of 
training to the school life of every child, and these, as every 
thoughtful educator will allow, years the most susceptible to 
direction and the most important in the formation of habits and 
character. 

Since 1881 the number of children who have received the bene- 
fit of the kindergarten from the Froebel Association has exceeded 
ten thousand. While it is not possible to follow the school course 
of these children after they leave the kindergarten, the body of 
testimony from the primary teachers and the principals of schools 
under whose observation they fall, is positive and overwhelming, 
as to the advantageous results, moral, mental and physical of 
their kindergarten training. Our association, incorporated by 
act of legislature, has carried on this work by the help of many 
of our citizens, and depends upon their continued aid to support 
these kindergartens planted in the needy, overcrowded districts 
of the city. 

The present officers of the Association are as follows.

FREE KINDERGARTEN ASSOCIATION. 
The Chicago Free Kindergarten Association will have charge 
of the kindergarten in the Illinois Building during the months of 
August, September and October. 

This association dates its beginning from September, 1880, 
when Miss M. H. Ross was called to the Cook County Normal 
school. The association was formally organized in September, 
1881, and chartered in 1883. Mrs. R. D. Fowler was elected its 
first president. Mrs. A. P. Kelley is now president, and the suc- 
cess of the association is largely due to her untiring energy and 
interest in the work. Hon. T. C. McMillan has continued from 
the organization of the association its recording secretary, and 
Mrs. L. V. Hagans, corresponding secretary; Mr. H. M. Sher- 
wood as treasurer. 

The office of the association is located at 33d and Armour 
Avenue. 

The association supports a free training class and has under 
its supervision twenty-one free kindergartens. These kindergar- 
tens are supported by churches, organizations and individuals. 
The pupil-teachers of the training class practice in the kinder- 
gartens during the morning and attend class three afternoons 
each week. 

The course of instruction has been extended to a two years' 
course. 

During the past year the association has become affiliated 
with the Armour Institute and the students of the kindergarten 
normal will receive the advantages offered to all members. 

Mrs. Lilian White Grant, the choice of the alumnae as prin- 
cipal for their kindergarten, will continue in charge during August 
September and October, and will be assisted by Miss Anna B. 
Holmes, principal of the Plymouth kindergarten, Miss Blanch

RECEPTION ROOM. 



Competitive designs for the decoration of this room were submitted to the 
board and the design of Miss Ida J. Burgess chosen. Wishing this work to 
represent the artists of the State as far as possible, she invited the assistance 
of the women whose names appear upon the various panels of the frieze and 
ceiling. 

The color scheme in the reception room is of warm ivory tints relieved in 
the ceiling with gold, and on the walls with cool green tones. The emblems of 
music, painting, the drama and literature appear in the cove which, with the 
panels in the ceiling, vere modeled by Miss Gwynn Price, Miss S. S. Hayden, 
Miss Jeanette Buckley and Miss May Elwell, after designs by Miss Burgess. 

The frieze is intended to illustrate the relation of women to the arts, and 
is the chief decorative feature of the room. It is divided into panels by pilas- 
ters and was painted by the following artists: 

Miss Ida J. Burgess, "Learning," "Youth." 

Miss Pauline A. Dohn, "Industrial Arts." 

Miss Alice D. Kellogg, "Instruction." 

Mrs. Marie Koupal Lusk, "Music." 

Miss Adele Fay, "The Drama." 

Mrs. Mary W. Means, "Poetry," "Dancers." 

Miss Helen B. Gregory, "J )'-" 

Miss Caroline D. Wade, Landscape. 

Miss Anna W. Jones, Landscape. 

Miss D. Gerow, "Oleanders." 

The walls are hung in silk of American manufacture, made 
to our order in special coloring. The design is Italian renais- 
sance, in harmony with the general design of the whole room. 

The silk window draperies are from a design by Miss Cora 
L. Field, manufactured by Charles A. Stevens & Co., Chicago. 
The carved wood transoms are from architectural designs 

by Mrs. Julia L. Cole.

THE LA SALLE MEMORIAL 



The La Salle Memorial is the woman's exhibit from La Salle 
County, and (with the exception of the binding) is entirely their 
handiwork. It is a large volume, with pages 24x18 inches in size, 
of heavy drawing paper, bound in dark green, with a medallion 
of La Salle in gold upon the cover. They have broad margins 
and beautifully illuminated borders; these, with the printing, all 
done in different text, are the work of young girls under the su- 
pervision of a committee. Many of the borders contain emblems 
of the period to which the article belongs. The borders of 
"French Explorations" are done in white and gold, with the Ori- 
flamme and Fleur-de-lis, skillfully interwoven. The poem of 
"Tonty" is encircled by a border done in the Italian colors, with 
medallions of the "Iron Hand" and the Italian crown. Each 
article is appropriately illustrated in water colors, crayon and pen 
and ink. The illustrations of "The Mound Builders" are pictures 
of vases and implements found in the mounds of La Salle 
County. 

The crosses and rings in "French Explorations" were drawn 
from Colonel Hitts' valuable collection of relics of "Ft. St. Louis." 

The book is further illustrated by twenty full page pict- 
ures in oil, water-color, crayon and pastel of the scenery and 
flora, with fine portraits of La Salle, Gen. Wallace, Judge Caton 
and the two noted chiefs, Black Hawk and Thabtoua. 

In the fifteen articles the varied and eventful story of the 
growth and development of the county from its geology to 
"Pioneer Days;" from its warfare with the red man to our inter- 
national strife; from that stormv period to our present "Industrial

Status" is concisely and smoothly told; and the wild pictur- 
esqueness of its scenery is vividly described. 

Sixty women have been engaged in this work, and it repre- 
sents one year's laborious toil; valuable services most generously 
contributed. 

The Preface was written by Mrs. Warren F. Day. 

The frontispiece of the entire book is a full page portrait of 
La Salle, the explorer, by Miss Matthiessen, of La Salle. Then 
follows, in the order given below: 

1. Geology, by Mrs. Mary Hegeler Carus, of La Salle, the illustrations 
by Miss Matthiessen. 

2. "The Mound Builders," by Mrs. Fannie C. Osman-Starrett, illustrated 
by Miss Renz, of Ottawa. 

3. "The Indians," by Mrs. Emma Linden Evans, illustrated by Miss 
Jekyll. 

4. "The French Explorers," by Miss Lura Nash Griggs, illustrated by 
Miss White, of Peoria. 

5. "Pioneer Days," by Miss Lyde Grove-Chapman, of Harding, illustrated 
by Mrs. Lillian B. Ruger. 

6. "Transportation," Mrs. Olive de Laney, illustrated by Miss Renz. 
"Tonty," a poem by Elizabeth H. Baldwin, border illustrations by Miss 

Grace Stout. 

"The Civil War" — General W. H. L. Wallace. This is a commendable 
combination. Mrs. Lillian B. Ruger has painted for the frontispiece of 
this sketch an excellent likeness of Gen. Wallace, and Miss Belle Wallace, a 
daughter of the General, has written a biographical sketch which follows it. 
Then Mrs. Julia M. Griggs, of Streator, has written a commendable article on 
the Civil War, handsomely illustrated by the Misses White, of Peoria. 

"The Bar," by Mrs. Jane Shay, of Streator; frontispiece, portrait of Judge 
John Dean Caton, by Mrs. Lillian B. Ruger. Other illustrations by Miss 
White, of Peoria. 

"Area and Agriculture," by Miss Mary Mclntyre, of Mendota, illustrated 
by Miss Pomeroy, of Marseilles. 

"The Flora," written and illustrated by Miss Rebecca Pomeroy, of Mar- 
seilles. 



ILLINOIS WOMAN'S EXPOSITION BOARD. 141 

"The Industrial Status," written and illustrated by Miss Lydia Strawn, of 
Ottawa. 

"The Picturesque and Reminiscences," written by Mrs. E. L. Petitclerc; 
illustrated by Miss Nettie Griffith. 

"Hope," a poem, by Mrs. Jane Ogden Locey, of La Salle. 

The illustrations, full page, half page, illuminated manuscripts and border 
etchings are by the most talented ladies of the brush and crayon. Mrs. 
Ruger, Miss Emily White, Miss Matthiessen, Miss Irwin, Miss Emily Jekyll, 
Miss Belle Wallace have all executed one or more full page illustrations. 
The young ladies who did manuscript work and borders were Misses Blanch 
Church, Isabel McKinley, Mary Formhals, Grace Stout, Bertha Lorriaux, 
Edith Evans, Jessie Evans, Mabel Lardin, Bertha Fox, all of Ottawa; Jennie 
Robbins, of Streator; Azelia Eustace, of Dayton. Borders were also done by 
Misses Mary Wilson and Rebecca Pomeroy, of Marseilles. 

Miss Irwin, of Utica, now in New York, designed the cover. 



A TRIBUTE TO KANE COUNTY. 



"A tribute to Kane County" by the Koregraphic Organization 
is a most interesting volume to those who are searching to find 
the many different lines of work in which women are employed, 
as well as to the people of the county whose history it so faith- 
fully depicts, also the work of its women in various positions. 

The Koregraphic Organization is composed of young women 
who have been employed by the county in its various county offices, 
and to show their appreciation of the advancement of the county 
in permitting them this privilege so much earlier than other 
counties, they compiled this memorial which has illustrated 
pages, copy of their work, as well as various Court Houses which 
the county has from time to time possessed. 

The manuscript, or history, is compiled by one of these 
young women, setting forth in detail the numerous openings 
which the county has so generously provided for its daughters to 
earn a livelihood, and various items of interest to all the people 
of the county. The book will be bound in the form of an official 
record, and will be in every way in keeping with the organization 
and county which it represents. 

The title page is a beautifully illuminated page contributed 
by Miss Grace Long, of Geneva, and the one portrait in the vol- 
ume is of Miss Minnie YVhaley, who served the county twelve 
years as deputy circuit clerk and recorder. Miss YVhaley was 
the first woman ever appointed to this position and received this 
appointment in 1865. This position has been held ever since by 

a woman. 

This exhibit is largely due to the earnest efforts of Miss 
Etta Irene Maybourne, president of the Koregraphic Organiza- 
tion.

PREFACE, 



To the Women of Illinois: 

The Illinois Woman's Exposition Board, recognizing that woman 
enters largely into the educational, charitable and professional work of 
the world, herewith presents the results of a canvass of the State for 
the number of women engaged in the education of our youth, in caring 
for the defective classes, the sick, the aged and the poor, and as near 
as possible, reporting those who are battling with life as wage earners. 
Through the interest and unremitting labors of the women in our 
County Columbian Clubs, the present volume has been m&de possible, 
and to them we dedicate this work, hoping that ere many years each 
and every county may send out women prepared to meet and conquer 
every, foe to morals, religion and progress. In the smaller towns the 
church is the fountain of all charitable work; hence, we have noted 
all the mission and aid societies reported, though they are but auxil- 
iaries of State organizations. As in all statistical work, much is over- 
looked, but enough is gathered to show the trend of public sentiment, 
and to prove that "The destiny of nations lies in the hands of woman."
